The USDA’s International Science and Education (ISE) Grants Program supports the internationalization of food, agriculture, and related programs at US universities and colleges. It is intended that ISE will improve the ability of American students, business people, and community members to compete more effectively in the global world of agriculture, food, and related sectors. In addition, ISE projects must be directed to agricultural research, extension, and teaching activities that enhance the capabilities of American colleges and universities to conduct international collaborative research, extension and teaching.

Proposals should demonstrate how the proposed work responds to specific needs and strengths of the university in addressing two areas:
1. Strengthening the Global Competence of Students, Faculty, and Staff in Agriculture and Related Areas Students–Areas of emphasis may include but are not limited to (a) planning, implementing and/or evaluating initiatives that enhance the international content of the curriculum; (b) ensuring that U.S. scientists, extension agents, and educators convey the implications of their international findings to others in the United States; or (c) enhancing the capabilities of colleges and universities to conduct collaborative research with other countries on issues relevant to U.S. agricultural performance.

2. Enhancing Business Performance in International Agriculture and Related Sectors–Through extension, research and/or teaching programs, enhance the ability of American agricultural producers, marketers and others in the agricultural community to operate effectively in the global arena. Supportable activities include but are not limited to (a) enhancing the capabilities of U.S. colleges and universities to provide cooperative extension education that promotes the application of new technology developed in foreign countries to U.S. agriculture; or (b) enhancing the capability of U.S. colleges and universities, in cooperation with other Federal agencies, to provide leadership and education programs in market identification, international trade policies, new or existing markets, and production efficiencies.
